    I am a Platinum card holder who usually stays at Mandalay Bay when going to Vegas. They send me the most offers, usually for three comp nights and $100 F&B credit per night. I will get occasional offers for some of the other properties, but nothing as lucrative. They will also send me offers every other day for New York New York at a reduced rate of $44 per night.

    This drives me crazy. Why on earth would I stay at NYNY and pay when I can stay at MB for free? This has been going on for a couple of years.

    Well, in the mail just a couple of days ago, I got an offer from NYNY for 4 comp nights around NYE, FB credit and $150 free play.

    Question:
    Isn't NYE the busiest time of the year in Vegas? Why on earth is NYNY being so generous now after offering me such crap offers the past couple of years. I don't get it.

    P.S. Going to the Beau next week on one of their charters! Looking forward to it!

    Maybe NY NY is trying to get your business. I always got offeres from excalibur and luxor free. Than a 200 free play from NY NY. But had to pay for room.Mandalay is a lot better. But the casino at NY NY is a lot more happening.

    Yes NYE is one of the busiest times of year. Maybe they need business. NOT.

    Enjoy if u go

    I get the same $44 offers from NYNY and, of course, the greatest deals of all time...Aria's room deals "from $79". MC's my new home. Awesome offers, location and they treat me well.

    Do NOT confuse real offers with generic offers.

    We get free rooms (usually) suites at any MGM property. But, we also get emails offering rooms for $44, $79, food credit, etc. They do those via mass mail and go to folks at most/all levels of play.

    Silly? Probably. They are just trying to fill rooms. And, they might get someone that gets free rooms to add in friends and family at these good rates.

    Mlife offers

    I agree with several people. I get email offers to pay for rooms when I have slot hosts at each hotel: Mandalay, Bellagio, Aria, Mirage, and MGM. I never pay for suites or food/drinks at any MGM property. I think you should call VIP casino marketing at each hotel and ask them what the best deal they can give you is.

    This is true. But some properties do just send out drastically different offers. I have a Mirage offer for 3 nights in a tower suite, $500 in free play, $400 in food plus a Limo - yet they regularly send me monthly, 3 free nights in a regular room, and nothing else. And these aren't mass mailings as they show up under M Life.

    We get the same thing... Mirage, Aria, Mandalay send us free rooms with FB credit/FP and then get Excalibur, NYNY, Monte Carlo sending us offers that aren't worth our time; even our home casino (Luxor) doesn't send us offers close to what the others are. I have called around on occasion just to see what's out there for us when planning a trip and most do have Rooms, F&B credit with FP available for us if we choose to stay with them. When I asked about the discrepencies in the offers I was told the higher tier properties marketing departments are setting these up to get more traffic to the property and unfortunately the lower tiers marketing isn't.. thus the lower tiers are losing some of their valuable players to these offers. How much truth there is to it.. is beyond me; it's just the information I was given.

    New Years offers from NYNY always seemed to be my best offers, I have yet to take them up on it.. maybe one day.

    Josie with the Mirage offer... I called my casino host at my home property and she matched it even though it's well above my play level :) I don't care for the Mirage or I would have used it there and I'm much more comfortable at the Luxor... and seeing as it's Holiday Gift Shop week & NFR I was really surprised she was able to do it.
